July 21st-ish, give birth to a healthy baby:
We sent this ultrasound picture to our parents on Christmas, they were so surprised and thrilled:
10 miles in Forest Park with my new running buddy:
Ultrasound taken at 8 1/2 weeks on December 14th. Belly picture taken at 12 weeks on January 7th. Running pictures taken today, January 22nd, at 14 weeks.
So much more to come, but I couldn’t wait any longer to make the announcement! I’m in the second trimester so figured the time was right.
I’m feeling great, still running quite a bit (slow!), and we are so excited. We were trying, but were lucky to get pregnant right away. We’ll find out if it’s a boy or girl in a few weeks!
Zach has been amazing, no surprise there. He’s in full training for a string of 3 ultras this spring and still taking care of things around the house and letting me rest a lot. I do what I can but most of my energy goes to going to work and getting regular exercise.
It’s been incredible so far and I can’t wait to share the details with you all. I know I won’t get around to updates every single week, but will do my best.
